Wisdom Gathering

Hi there.

I’m starting online workshops, or “Wisdom Gatherings” on Zoom (an online platform for conferences), around once a week, usually on Friday.

You will get to hang out with other smart, creative, insightful people and I will teach some useful yoga concepts and techniques to help with life.
(They will be free, though donations are always appreciated!)

We will breathe a little, laugh a little and maybe learn a thing or two about how to make life a bit easier. 

And you can find past Gatherings below.

Past Wisdom Gatherings

I Tried Mindfulness, But…

In this workshop I talk about meditation and mindfulness. 
* What is mindfulness, and how it’s different to therapy and how it isn’t.
* How to troubleshoot your meditation practice so that you don’t hate it.
* Redefining how we know that the practices “work” (hint: they always work, always)


Mental Health for Political Activists

In this workshop I explain how the world of “politics” and the world of “self-healing” clash because they have different narratives. The way to resolve this is to separate between the “personal” and the “political”.
When we do the self-healing work, we become better activists, because we are no longer overwhelmed by our pain.


I also teach the basic process to follow when we are triggered by someone’s political comment that feels all too personal.

Belonging in your Body

This is what we covered:

* Why it’s not up to anyone to tell your body how it should look like, including YOU

* Why your relationship with your body is a blueprint for your relationship with your life, and with others

* Why mastering your body is counterproductive.

Hope you’ll find it useful.

Working with Discouragement

This workshop was a bit different. We talked about being in “The Space Between Stories”.

This is a difficult concept to grasp, but it’s essential that we do so, if we are the people for whom the “Mainstream Story” no longer works. And there’s more of us every day!

I also show how to do a Daily Check-In. It’s super easy, and can be done at any time. 

Enjoy, and let me know what you think!

Get Focused During Lockdown

Another great workshop where we cover: why it’s hard to focus during lockdown, follow your intuition, how to be productive, how to be motivated through love.
We work with guilt and “shoulds”. And how to observe them and listen to what they have to say.
Why you want to “partner” with your projects, and with time.
And the difference between “letting our stuff go” and pushing it away.

How to keep your spirits up during lockdown

A super useful workshop where we cover depression, insecurities and fears.
Why our “stuff” shows up at this particular time of lockdown. 
What physical, mental and emotional stuck look like.
How to work with the depression / fear, by letting it be there.
And the difference between “letting our stuff go” and pushing it away.

How to get along with others

Also known as “learn the very basics of how to deal with people”.
We jumped into the core of self-work with the absolute basic concepts to make all social interactions easier.
We covered: What is “stuff”, how we all trigger each others’ stuff, what to do when someone says something mean (“Who would want to marry you”)
We also talked about whether we should tell others that they have stuff, and how we all have stuff around money. 

What to do when we feel Overwhelmed

A few yoga concepts and techniques to help with that feeling of paralysing spin off.

Starting with a body check-in and some breathing to calm down.

We then deal with our overwhelm with compassion and care.

Panic, guilt, depression, paralysis. Dreading things and not doing them, or wanting to do things but not doing them. We cover all of these.

How to Survive the Apocalypse

A few yoga concepts and techniques to help with the madness.
Some breathing to calm down, and a few tricks to not lose all our marbles.

A bit about what this moment in time means for our collective human evolution. (Shit’s getting real, y’all!)

Self-Care or Something Like It

Me and Meg (That Hummingbird Life) talking about the reality of self-care.

Self-care, Why it’s Difficult

Just me talking about the vulnerability of caring for yourself.
